The IDF has revealed the official logo of its upcoming 70th anniversary celebrations. The logo was chosen after the IDF asked the public to vote online for their favorite logo out of three options.

The chosen logo combines the symbol of the Haganah – a sword with an olive branch – with the number 70 shaped like a Star of David. It won by an overwhelming majority, receiving 57% of the votes.
